A new web tool is now available that lets you actually create your own online school. Designed for corporations but useful for school districts, Learn27 lets you manage and run online courses, register and accept payment for those courses, and even teach using mobile apps.
It’s not a free tool, mind you, but the sheer amount of things Learn27 does should make up for that. Here’s a few of the things you can do:
- Develop an online academy
– Manage courses and instructor info
– Student registration & fee payments
– Promote on social media channels
– Stream content (Live or On Demand)
– Community and networking
– Extend access via mobile apps
For now, it’s mostly businesses using Learn27 with the exception of the University of Washington. You can create an online learning program that integrates polls, surveys, ticket management (for events), a mood-o-meter (awesome concept that shows live feedback of how students / attendees feel when viewing a presentation or lesson).
The biggest reason for this tool? To lower the cost of training employees, teachers, and students around the world. That’s a noble goal and I can get behind that. You can use Learn27 for just about anything from a keynote to building the entire online education version of your school. Worth a look for any principal, superintendent, or other administrator looking to grab online learning by the horns.
